  •  It doesn't really matter what doctrine they (5+ / 0-)

    teach at the University, or whether or not they recognize the value of Galileo.  There is supposed to be a separation of the church and the state, even in San Diego.

       Remember that I don't like the idea of a committee appointed by someone to then nominate members to a school board.  However, if you're going to do that, it would seem a representative from a local university (maybe one private and one public) would actually be beneficial.  The person from USD would be there not as a representative of the Catholic Church but as a representative of higher education.  San Diego probably has more than one private university, so why not rotate among all the universities (private and public)?  Do you really think it would be fair to the students to say, "Only public universities or only public universities and private non-religious universities will have any say on the school board"?
       If you want input from the community, which is the supposed reason for this strange proposal, you can't cut out anyone in an official capacity within a religious organization.  That would mean the head of large but church-affiliated hospital could not serve on a committee appointed by the mayor to find ways to improve city finances, attract new businesses, improve the city, etc.
